Specials Bought by an US Army officer in the early 1950s from the Moh Long Boutique in the Imperial Hotel while staying in Tokyo. He died this year. The Moh Long boutique is still in business! This is very rare!!!! Buttons are shell, the print is hand block, the silk is very fragile. The tailoring is amazing looking at the double stitched seams.
